I’m doing some research on first impressions and need some help coming up with statements that signal employee competence/incompetence. The statements can’t signal personality (ie Tom works overtime) since that would be a confound, but things like experience, learning ability are fair game. The ostensible position is product manager
Here’s what I’ve come up with so far:
- (Kevin/Tom) graduated with an MBA from Harvard Business School
- At his previous job, (Kevin/Tom) found and fixed a major error in the user tracking software that could have resulted in major data breaches
- (Kevin/Tom) has had 10 years experience working as a senior product manager
- (Kevin/Tom) consistently rolled out projects weeks ahead of schedule as senior product manager
- (Kevin/Tom) was recognized as “Top Manager” 5 years in a row
- (Kevin/Tom) helped design a streamlined product development workflow that is now an industry standard
- Projects managed by (Keven/Tom) have never gone over budget.
- (Kevin/Tom) has no experience in design or systems management
- At his previous job, (Kevin/Tom) was infamous for making errors that took coworkers tens of hours to find and fix
- (Kevin/Tom) relies on coworkers to finish tasks assigned to him
- (Kevin/Tom) has never individually completed
- At his previous job, (Kevin/Tom) frequently misunderstood the nature of projects, resulting in poor planning and delays
- (Kevin/Tom) struggles with schedule management on projects, resulting in significant delays.
